So in some respect, it seems like my first Ultra Marathon is so far off... and yet, I panic when I think about how close it is. It is in April 2016. My official training starts December 1st. I plan to document most of it on here. The training should prove to be interesting considering I live in Iowa and my longest runs will be in Jan, Feb, March. THAT is scary. Anyway, right now I am just enjoying the run. I make sure to get one SLOW long run in a week. To me a "long" run is just anything over 10 miles. So it may be 10 one week, it may be 20. I am a little excited because yesterday I signed up for my local Anytime Fitness. I am going to need that place throughout training for some cross training and specifically weight training (that was a lot of "training" in one sentence.) I will probably do some updating on here how my experiences at the fitness center go. I am a bit excited about it... yet a little nervous. That is clearly the introvert in me. Happy Running!
